About Our Training Theory

We at OTR DRIVING SCHOOL believe our students should be exposed to as many aspects of truck driving as possible. We have introduced our new basic course with available add-on courses that allow our students to take those extra courses that will best suit the type of truck driving that they will pursue.


Truck in Rain

           Do Our Teaching Beliefs Meet Your Expectations?

Our primary goal is to help our students succeed. While we cannot cover every single situation that a truck driver faces, each of our Class 1 and 3 students receives a copy of our 100-page manual (on CD). This manual introduces many subjects such as, road hazards, emergencies, winter driving, night driving, backing up, loading dock procedures, and parking. The CD prompts students to ask questions that our instructors will answer before or after their next lesson.

The Advanced Class 1 Course includes an all-day mountain trip up the Coquihalla Hwy to Kamloops and then back down Fraser Canyon. During this trip, most of the skills learned will be used. You will come away from this experience with a greater confidence in your ability and understanding of the conditions a truck driver faces driving in the mountains.

We at OTR DRIVING SCHOOL are here to answer any and all questions for our prospective students. Feel free to call us and ask any questions you have about truck driving and our school.
